Wallace's piece this week is hilarious and it just confirms how much of her worldview is defined by the Washington bubble.
Since then, Obama has continued to campaign for the stimulus bill—even after its passage in both houses of Congress—because the White House sees the drooping poll numbers for the package. Growing numbers of Americans are questioning the bill’s size and impact on the deficits, its ability to create jobs in a meaningful and lasting way, and the items that sound a more like pork than job makers.She writes as if Republicans were not in power for the last eight years. Wallace seems confused. The party of inaction defined itself while they controlled all three branches (yes, they control the judicial branch.) The only plan put forth by Republican senators consisted entirely of tax breaks. Yes, no spending. So I'm not sure what plans she is referring to.
.... Republicans are at risk of being painted by Obama as being for “inaction,” which is far from the truth. Republicans like John McCain describe the stimulus bill as “generational theft,” and many people share that view. Senate Republicans offered their own package and included triggers that would shut off spending when the economy improved. These are sound ideas, but many of them never received much attention outside Washington.
Also, what polls is she reading? I know that every poll, minus the GOP produced Rasmussen, shows the support has only dipped slightly then increased again.
The comments on Wallace's piece are also hilarious. The GOP has been defined by their actions and inaction as families struggle to make ends meet. Just as GOP House member after house member parked themselves in front of the camera over the last two weeks to "just say no" to Obama's stimulus.
I can't believe anyone still pays Wallace for her opinion. At least Steve Schmidt has the good sense to stay out of the limelight at this point. Too bad, Ms. Wallace hasn't followed suit.
